Spring is (almost) in the air, and what better time than now to invest in some key, colorful pieces that will wow? So many of us reach for seasonal neutrals like white, or pops of pattern like floral. But what about exploring the whimsical world of spring greens at some of our go-to shops? We’ve got you covered with five chic pieces from head to toe.
Stripes are pretty much always a good idea, no? We are absolutely loving this versatile, scarf-inspired silk headband by L. Erickson, available at Nordstrom. And while they have a ton of patterns, this smart kelly green stripe brings a preppy flair for a major style win. $58.
Everyone loves a good day dress. This wool and silk offering from Diane von Furstenberg is perfect for a garden party — or just a date with the hubby. Pair with black tights, moto boots, and a cardigan to dress it down and warm it up. And when temperatures rise in a few weeks, it’ll be just as lovely bare-legged with a dainty or chunky pump. $468, Saks.
There’s a green for every gal with a slouchy, cozy long-sleeve from Two by Vince Comuto. Choose Dusty Olive or Pale Turquoise — you can’t go wrong either way. The loose-fitting shape is ultra-flattering, skimming the body without hugging too tight. But it’s not so loose as to create the dreaded sloppy look. I might just nab this in both colors! $89 each, Lord & Taylor.
Take a brief hiatus from your beloved skinnies and step into the new must-have pant: the drapey. An elastic waistband gives this sweatpant-style comfort, but the silky fabric makes them office-appropriate. Slightly cropped and up for anything, these are a perfect choice for a day at work, a birthday party with the kids, or just to elevate everyday life a little bit. Now on sale more than 50% off — $45, Banana Republic.
Mint shoes are ladylike and lovely. This suede pair from Madewell is super-sweet, and they come in a great size run to accommodate not only length but width. A smart, modern design makes them day-appropriate and evening-ready. Add a springy hue to your shoe collection at a cool $168.
